Pascal’s Principle

In previous lesson, we have discussed measuring gas pressure. In this lesson, we are going to discuss Pascal’s Principle, including its formula and applications. In SPM, there are a few thing s that we need to know about the Pascal’s Principle. First of all, of course we need to know what is stated in Pascal’s … Read more

Measuring Gas Pressure

In previous lesson, we have discussed atmospheric pressure, including the proofs of existence, measurement of atmospheric pressure and applications of atmospheric pressure. In this lesson, we are going to continue with measurement of gas pressure by using Bourdon Gauge and manometer. In SPM, most questions about measurement of gas pressure are related to manometer. Therefore, … Read more

Pressure and Liquid Pressure

Force and Pressure is the 3rd chapter in SPM form 4 Physics. There are 6 main sub-topics in this chapter, namely pressure, liquid pressure, gas pressure, Pascal’s Principle, Archimedes Principle and Bernoulli’s Principle. In pressure, we will discuss what pressure is, the formula of pressure and applications of high and low pressure. In liquid pressure, … Read more

Elasticity

The second thing that you need to know about the F – x graph is how the spring constant can be determined from the graph. Spring constant is the ratio of force exerted on a spring to the extension or compression of the spring. Therefore, it is equal to the gradient of the graph. Let’s … Read more

Power and Efficiency

In previous lesson, we have discussed energy, including the kinetic energy, the potential energy, the principle of conservation of energy and the work energy model. In this lesson, we are going to discuss power, equation of power, efficiency and equation of efficiency. In SPM, there are 3 points that you need to know about power: … Read more

Energy

In previous lesson, we have discussed work. In this lesson, we are going to continue with energy. First of all, we will discuss the definition of energy. After that we will discuss 2 types of energy: the kinetic energy and potential energy. There are 2 types of potential energy: gravitational potential energy and elastic potential … Read more

Work

Work, Energy and Power is the last section of second chapter of SPM form 4 physics. In this section, we are going to discuss work, including what is meant by work done and the unit of work done. We will also discuss the equation of work done, when the direction of force is NOT the … Read more

Force as a Vector

Force as a vector is the last part in this course. In SPM, under force as a vector, we need to learn addition of vectors, resolution of vectors, inclined plane and equilibrium of forces. In this lesson, we will focus on addition of forces, where we will discuss how to use the triangle law and … Read more
